The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is excited to announce that along with the support of Edmonton Chamber of Commerce, First General Edmonton and Shell Canada, we recently donated 18 electronic devices to the clients of the Bent Arrow Traditional Healing Society, Bissell Centre, and Berkeley’s Place. This donation will help with their mission to train, assist, and develop the communities they serve.

“Without a computer at their accessibility I think its very difficult.  So, knowing that this is such a huge part of our program and such a huge donation that we really appreciate and will defiantly help our participants a whole lot more” -Alicia Nankissoor, Employment Corrdinator, Bent Arrow Traditional Healing Society.

Bent Arrow Traditional Healing Society is committed to building upon the strengths of Aboriginal children, youth and families to enable them to grow spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally so that they can walk proudly in both the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Communities.  The ERA is excited to donate 10 Laptops to their program.
